We were traveling to Vienna and spent the night in Melk. The hotel was in an ideal location in Melk. A plus was the fact that the hotel's restaurant was excellent and appeared to be the busiest restaurant (by far) in town. The food was excellent. Our room was spacious and we stayed in a typical room with a double... More

We stumbled upon the Hotel zur Post after deciding that the village where we booked an apartment was too sleepy for us. I had no idea that we had just found the number one hotel in town according to TA. We stayed for two nights in the Barock Suite. It was a little cramped for the four of us, but... More

The hotel, our room, the location, the view, the staff, everything was amazing! Located in the heart of beautiful Melk, with breathtaking views of the Abbey and cobblestone streets lined with quaint shops and restaurants. it was like a fairly tale. Our room, the Marille Suite was large, clean, and quiet with a fantastic view of the street and the... More

Great position in the Centre of Melk over looking the Monastery. Staff very friendly and helpful. Garaged parking very close by. Room was comfortable and very... More

Our room was comfortable and extremely clean. We were in the front and had a spectacular view - particularly at night - of the Abbey. The breakfast buffet was excellent, and we also enjoyed dinner in the restaurant.

Room was really nice. The staff were friendly and helpfull and the breakfast was very good with nice variety for a buffet. We only stayed the one night and even though it was raining we couldn't fault the hotel. The main attraction in the town is the abbey but we decided not to go in the rain. Other than that... More

The Hotel Restaurant zur Post is a nice, ideally located hotel in Melk, an easy walk to everything. The rooms are basic, but nice and clean. We loved the food and atmosphere at the Poststüberl. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel provides spacious rooms, updated bathrooms, great restaurant (where we had dinner and breakfast), and a 6:00 am wake up call from the bells at the abbey above town! They provide good service here, and the place is conveniently located to walk up to the abbey which towers above the town. If arriving by boat, the hotel is about... More

We arrived when there were fears that some of the town would flood so were diverted by the police and eventually found the hotel! The lovely receptionist volunteered to come in our car with us to ensure we found the car park and did not get sent out of town again! We had the two bedroomed apartment right at the... More

A lovely hotel in the centre of Melk and only a 5 min easy walk from the railway station. We didn't have a view of the abbey but it didn't matter because as soon as we stepped outside the door there it was! The abbey is a 'must' visit, with a tour guide recommended. The abbey gardens were not open... More
